Critical National Infrastructure (CNI)

Infrastructure related to energy, transport, communications and public health are essential to a nation’s safety, prosperity and wellbeing and this has increasingly made them a target for both physical and cyber attacks. Critical Infrastructure Protection (CIP) measures are vital to key assets such as nuclear reactors, water treatment plants and dams.

Protection from electromagnetic threats needs to fit seamlessly into the infrastructure environment alongside physical and cyber measures to ensure that operation is both smooth and secure.

Why RFeye Guard?

The essential services provided by national infrastructure such as power plants, chemical facilities and drug manufacturing facilities need an extremely high level of security. Cyber and electromagnetic intrusion into such a facility can be one of the easiest ways to cause massive economic damage or even large-scale loss of life.

Using a covert device to gain remote access to the network infrastructure of a drug manufacturing facility, the industrial automation systems can be controlled to dangerously alter dosages. A data exfiltration attack on a nuclear power plant can be used to find out when nuclear materials are due to be moved and the security protocols in place. By definition, any attack on Critical National Infrastructure is likely to be disastrous.

RFeye Guard is a key component of protection for the Cyber and Electromagnetic environment in and around these facilities. The system will monitor the RF spectrum in real time allowing potential threats to be located, removed and investigated.

However, these kind of attacks designed to do immediate damage are not the only threats that CNI facilities face. RFeye Guard can also be used to prevent the use of eavesdropping devices related to industrial espionage as well as accidental RF interference to industrial automation systems.
